Alela Diane


The video for Alela Diane’s new single ‘Desire’ has arrived! The song was written by Alela and her husband Tom Bevitori who features in the video (he’s the guy strumming on the rooftop, not the drunkard in the bar). “The song is about a woman I know who shall remain anonymous … It’s not about me,” Alela told Spinner. “We shot the video in the Soho area of London. The close-up shots were filmed on a rooftop three roofs down from where Elton John allegedly wrote ‘Your Song’.” The video was directed by Andy Dunn.

Alela Diane - Live at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe NYC 11/04/11 in Alela Diane

The most enjoyable good deed you’ll do all day…

Last month the lovely Alela and her band Wild Divine gave a special 6-track preview of their new album (out now) at the Housing Works Book Store Cafe in NYC. All proceeds went to Housing Works, the charity fighting to end AIDS and homelessness. To contribute to the cause simply watch a song (or two – the more you watch the more you donate!). Your views generate revenue via the VEVO platform, and all proceeds go to Housing Works!
